WHY OBAMA WANTS TO RUN AGAINST ROMNEY
Has anyone noticed how Romney has avoided all the attacks, published or otherwise, that have been leveled against all the other Republican nominees? It's true that recently the Obama administration ran an ad attacking Romney on his flip-flopping, but this was likely just to avoid what was becoming all too apparent: Romney is the man they want to run against. Sure, he's a flip-flopper, and that's something they'll be bringing back if Romney gains the Republican nomination. But the Democrats have spent a lot of time and money already attempting to lay the groundwork for their run against Romney. Every student of George Soros and the Democrat Left knows that the whole "Occupy Wall Street" movement was generated from the "top-down", despite Nancy Pelosi's attempts to make us believe otherwise. Yes, if the Democrats could successfully lay the foundation for a Romney run by working well in advance to turn the tide of public opinion against anything Wall Street, they'll be in a perfect position to run against the ultimate "Wall-Streeter", Mitt Romney. After all, Romney IS WALL STREET -- it's where he made his money and his mark, and where he claims to have developed that great expertise that's going to pull America out of its doldrums. The Democrats have been trying to lay the groundwork for their 2012
argument that all of America's problems lay at the doorstep of Wall Street itself --- Wall Street caused the economic collapse, walked off with everyone's money either through the bail-outs or through those astronomical bonuses we all hear about, and they really epitomize what is standing in the way of the little guy getting his part of the American pie. You and I know that none of this makes any sense, either economically or otherwise, but the Democrats don't operate on the field of rationality. In fact, the opposite is true: the more people they can keep down and out of the arena of genuine thought, the more they can propagandize them into believing anything they want them to. So, having laid the groundwork for the 2012 battle as being between Wall Street and Obama, securing the nomination for Romney is all that's left to put all the pieces in place for a successful 2012 campaign. He's perfect for the part. And for a bonus, he'll dampen the enthusiasm of the base to come out and vote for their man. Perfect. Who knows, maybe some of them will even stay home from the polls.
All the work of "Occupy Wall Street" cannot go to waste. Enter the other GOP candidates: Bachmann -- she engenders much too much enthusiasm from the Tea Party part of the GOP. Let's get rid of her with a couple of really bad migraines. Perry -- he doesn't fit into any Wall Street mold, and all his talk of the 10th amendment will embolden the base. Let's get rid of him with a good old Southern-style charge of racism. Yea, that should do it. Of course, his inability to debate didn't help him much either. How about Cain? Now that's a real nightmare for the Democrats. Someone who grew up black, in the old South, with nothing to propel him towards success except his own hard work. No, the Democrats can't have anything that remotely looks like the downtrodden could actually achieve the American Dream by means of good old fashioned hard work. Let's get rid of him by a few charges, unsubstantiated of course, of sexual harassment. Let's make him a downright deviant! Yea, that's the ticket! A black man who preys on white women. That's always worked before.
Enter Newt Gingrich. Humm...he's a problem. Masterful debater. Architect of the Republican Revolution in 1995. Perhaps the closest thing to an heir apparent to Ronald Reagan among this field. And he gives the crowd the red meat they want. He taps into all the rage that Americans are feeling toward the one who has taken their beloved America and fundamentally tried to change it. He taps into the enthusiasm. Yea, he's wealthy, but his wealth is like Obama's: earned from essentially nothing. That won't fit into the Occupy Wall Street narrative. And in a debate with Obama, Obama can't turn to him and say, "You have no idea what it's like to have nothing." I can see Mitt Romney standing there now with a "deer in the headlights" look. Yes, Gingrich has it all: debate chops, conservative creds (he's actually accomplished some of the conservative agenda), and he tells it like it is (the problem with Obama is not just incompetence, it's malevolence). And he knows where all the bones are buried in Washington, D.C. Give him any subject, anywhere in the world, and not only the modern facts, but the historical ones, are at this man's disposal. Obama couldn't hold a candle to him in a debate. He could teach all Americans a thing or two about how some of these problems have been handled in history, and how those same solutions could work again now. Intriguing. Enthusiasm factor is there, too. Uh, oh. Gingrich is a nightmare for the Democrats. Not only will their man be tied into a pretzel during the campaign as Gingrich dogs Obama every step along the way and teaches America a thing or two about the evils of socialism along the way, but all that time and money spent on the Occupy Wall Street narrative will have been wasted.
George Soros, frustrated again.
